Used CD Grade
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD".
This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer
Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play
without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove,
you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not,
then you may return it for a full refund.
With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of
surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be
clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we
handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted
otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so
look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Bob Dorough and Dave Frishberg are two of the most enigmatic singers in jazz – both carving out a strange little space for themselves in the hipster crossover scene of the late 60s, and continuing to grow tremendously through the seventies as both writers and performers. Both have a perfect ... CD
Mellow but compelling work from Betty Carter – singing here with the Norman Simmons trio in an album of material pulled from 2 different live dates in 1969. There's a few nice numbers where the group really opens up – and Betty pushes the envelope vocally, in a style that she'd explore ... CD
2 mid 50s sides cut for Columbia as part of Jimmy Rushing's revival during that decade. Cat Meets Chick is an interesting set – kind of a parody of the Girl Meets Boy album that had been issued a year or two before on Columbia – done with vocals by Jimmy and Ada Moore, and recorded as ... CD
One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time! The style is similar to the trio's Sing A Song Of ... CD
One of the most unique albums in Sammy's years at Reprise – recorded with arrangements from Brit Easy maestros Johnny Keating and Peter Knight, and done as a tribute to American stars who'd passed over the stage of the London Palladium in the years before Sammy had made his debut there. And ... CD
